A child is entitled to his/her choices of choosing friends and playmates.
When you say that your child is not able to make friends, it might just be your perception about the child. You might be overlooking the possibility that maybe the child is into playing alone. Another possibility could be that maybe the child is not being allowed to play what the (s)he wants hence the child takes resorts to self-play. Playing alone makes the child a priority for himself/herself.
In a nutshell, we can only motivate our children to live a better life and if they are introverted or extroverted, it is up to us to accept and respect them for who and how they are instead of trying to change them as per our notions of perfect children. Love them unconditionally for being themselves and avoid forcing societal conditioning on them. Introvert or extrovert is just a state of being. It is not a problem.
It becomes a little awkward to explain such things to your child.
Intolerance is not the same as possessiveness. It might have underlying reasons.
All humans are stubborn, more or less. That does not mean you cannot teach your child to put their foot down and patiently listen to what the other person has to say.
A child is bound to throw a tantrum because who else if not the child. This does not mean the tantrums can not be tamed.
A child will always stay true to his/her nature. Nonetheless, there is always room for changes and improvements.
A regular habit or not, thumb sucking can cause problems in a child's speech.
Most kids are possessive by nature. Observe carefully where there possession ends.
When a toddler asks you a question, either it comes out of curiosity or it could be just attention seeking. Whatever is the case, it is always best to feed your child's curiosity and give them undivided attention.
Children lie when they feel they actions will not be accepted by their parents. Assure your child that you will be there to support them when things go downhill.
Every child needs full attention of a parent. So, pause and reflect on your parenting to make sure none of your children feel left out.
Children model their parents the most. Develop the listening skill yourself and then help the child to achieve the same.
Self esteem or self confidence plays a huge role in an individual's life. Encouraging a child's confidence at the right time can do wonders.
Before assuming that your child is a disobedient child, assess what according to you is disobedience.
Discipline teaches your child how to behave and how not to behave in social and routine situations. It also lays the foundation for the kind of adult the child is going to be.
Knowing the interest of your child will help you guide your child better.
